The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has closed the tender for a 53,200-square metre residential site at Choa Chu Kang Drive.
The highest offer for the site was for S$116 million, which translates to S$203 per square foot. The offer was submitted by Tian Hock Properties.
Li Hiaw Ho, executive director of CBRE Research said given the top bid of S$203 per square foot and an estimated breakeven cost of S$580 to S$600 per square foot, the estimated selling price could be S$650 per square foot if the project is launched in a year.
The site at Choa Chu Kang Drive was launched for public tender in March 2008, and is on a 99-year lease.
URA said the winner will be selected after all bids have been evaluated. – CNA /ls
